Take a Dream Vacation to Tuscany and make sure that you bring your camera.
Photographer Stephen Banks, who joined the Wayfarers Walks in Tuscany this summer says it is a ‘must-do’ vacation for anyone who enjoys taking pictures.
‘You know you’ve had a successful trip when you end up with more than 1,500 images with which you’re pleased!’ he said.
“Walking through ancient towns, with churches and castles, through stunning landscapes in the sunshine – I was spoiled for choice!
‘The first thing that struck me was the size of the landscapes. I knew Italy was a relatively small country, but when you’re standing on top of the town hall in Montepulciano, for instance, and you see a vast expanse of countryside, penned in by mountainous peaks, and a huge sky above, you realize what a joy it is to photograph.
When you Take a Dream Vacation to Tuscany you will discover particular highlights for me were seeing the Chapel of the Madonna of Vitaleta and the views from La Foce on the Classic Tuscany Walk, then Cortona (particularly getting up at 5am to photograph the sunrise), the walk atop Monte Subasio towards Assisi and the food at our final hotel in Tuscany and Umbria, the Castello di Spaltenna. Wonderful!’
Highlights of the trips include:
- Guided tours of Siena and Orvieto
- Visit the Basilica of St Francis, a Unesco World Heritage Site
- Olive oil tasting at an ancient monastery
- Walking through the vineyards of Chianti Classico
